Narrative Medicine: A Films & Comix Series
Voted “Best Film of the Decade” in a 1999 Village Voice Film Poll, Safe details a wealthy suburban housewife’s physical and psychological breakdown as she develops multiple chemical sensitivities.
Through a masterfully ambiguous and unsettling tone, the film upends the conventions of both “disease of the week” and psychological/environmental horror movies. Julianne Moore stars, in a defining performance. Director of Film/Video David Filipi and Brad Prestwich, MD candidate in Ohio State’s College of Medicine, lead a discussion after the screening.
